Keep your family safe by calling Holloway Plumbing to install a Pressure Balance Valve in Boerne to prevent water-related injuries. All across the country, an estimated 200,000 people are injured from drastic change in temperatures in their residential and commercial properties. In fact, most of those injuries are suffered by the elderly and small children. In an effort to help our clients prevent these types of injuries, we wanted to introduce you to a little known device: the Pressure Balance Valve. This nifty little product has been required in hospitals and nursing homes all over the country for decades. Have you ever noticed that the water temperature in the shower at a hotel stays the same no matter how many toilets are flushed, showers are running, or loads of laundry are being washed? Well, it’s all thanks to this device.

When you turn on your shower at home, a certain amount of pressure is released by the cold and hot water delivery systems. If someone flushes the toilet, the cold water delivery system suddenly experiences an increase in pressure, which changes the pressure of the hot water delivery system. If a pressure balance valve is installed, this device automatically corrects the pressure to maintain the existing temperatures throughout your home or business. In essence, you no longer have to worry about running the dishwasher if little Timmy is taking a shower because he won’t suddenly have scalding hot water pouring over his head. This device ensures the safety of everyone in your home, no matter what’s going on.

As helpful as this device is, we strongly recommend having a licensed plumber install this item for you. Before installation, the technician will examine your property’s plumbing to look for clogged drains, leaky pipes, or other plumbing problems that may prevent the pressure balance valve from operating properly. In any event, we are here to help all of our Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Boerne, & Texas Hill Country neighbors with all of their plumbing needs.
